we are holly and jordan
we were tired of fast fashion companies run by billionaires putting profit first and promising to do right by 2030 so we put everything on the line to do it ourselves.
endless late nights working, researching and developing, whilst also completing a degree saw us scrap hundreds of shoe designs, brand names and logos until trash planet was born.
home for 5 days
in january 2020, we drove through the entirety of france and spain to get to our factory in portugal.
when we arrived, we had nowhere to stay so hung around in cafe's for almost a week and stayed in hostels until we found somewhere to live.
studio flat whilst in lockdown
in just our second month we were put into lockdown due to covid-19. as we'd driven to portugal, we couldn't catch a flight back and the ferries had stopped running.
so we worked from home for a couple of months until the restrictions were lifted.
sustainability + ethics
we didn't feel it was right trying to build trash planet from thousands of miles away.
we only work with local european suppliers and manufacturers - living in portugal means we can work closely alongside them and ensure ethical working conditions.
